Wesley in Washington

Friends and family of the First Colored Wesley Methodist Church spent a lovely day in Washington D.C. cruising down the Potomac and marveling at the statue of icon.

It was the Scholarship Committee’s “Martin on the Mall” day trip, an event to raise money to support Wesley students.

The day’s main attraction was a stop at the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. monument on the National Mall, but the seriousness of that moment was buffered by fun times. We dined. We danced. We shopped.

Our enthusiastic group took off from Washington Avenue at about 7:30 a.m. and we enjoyed a showing of “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection” while we traveled down I95. By 10:45 a.m., we were at the dock preparing to board for our luncheon cruise on the Spirit of  Washington. We had to stop our second movie “Joyful Noise” in mid-shout.

Seated in our floating restaurant, we looked out at the monuments of the nation’s capital. We dined on a fresh salad bar, tilapia with lobster cream, herb roasted chicken, apricot-glazed pork loin, three-cheese pasta al forno, garlic mashed potatoes and a dessert trio. One  word. Yum.

Our cruise deejay kept the mood poppin’ with a dance contest (Rev. Edmonson’s grand daughter Diamond was a contestant) and then nearly all of Wesley poured out on the dance floor for the line dances. Two words. Electric Slide.

Then, it was on to see Martin. The $120 million monument was dedicated on Oct. 16, 2011. Chinese sculptor Lei Yixin created the statue that shows Dr. King seemingly stepping out of “a stone of hope.” The statute’s towering size symbolizes Dr. King’s monumental contribution to the nation.

After about 45 minutes with Dr. King, it was on to some discount shopping. We hopped on the bus for Arundel Mills mall in Hanover, Maryland. Stores included Off Fifth, J. Crew, Best Buy, Coach, and more and more and more.

Then, we boarded our bus for the trip back to South Philly. On the way, it was more Tyler Perry, this time  it was “ Tyler Perry’s I Don’t Want to Do Wrong.” When we stepped off the bus on Washington Ave., we were tired, but it was a good tired.

To sum it up: the weather was beautiful (70s in October); the company was great; the food was tasty and the Lord blessed.

See you in June for “Motown: the Musical.”

Sun. Dec. 16th Church Family Christmas Dinner
